Whilst 3D is slowly starting to take off on large displays, such as televisions, the technology has not fared well on other devices. Whilst the Nintendo 3DS is a mighty fine handheld gaming console and is but one example of how 3D can work in your hands, smartphones and tablets simply haven’t been viable for manufacturers, often proving to be a rather large waste of time and development. At this years CES though Gadmei have had a new tablet being shown off, which brings 3D to a larger display than a phablet or smaller sized tablet.
It’s called the 3D HD Pad. The device packs an 8.1-inch 1,280 x 800 display, a 1.5GHz Cortex-A9 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a 5,000 mAh battery and Android 4.2. Those specifications don’t make this tablet all that powerful, nor that much of a consideration for those whom are interested in Nexus tablets or perhaps the iPad, but the fact that this tablet allows its user to toggle between 2D and 3D viewing on select applications gives it a unique selling point at least.
Gadmei is a Chinese electronics firm focusing on technology and electronics development. They are relatively unknown in the UK, however have a number of televisions and other electronics on the market across Asia.
There are no details as to when if ever this tablet could make its way over to UK shores, however it were ever to do so, it would be interesting to see what consumers think of it.
